Jason Dunstall and Billy Brownless think Adelaide might make one change to their team for the grand final against Richmond at the MCG on Saturday.
The Crows didn’t experience any injuries last week in their preliminary final win against Geelong, but the fellas think Richmond’s smaller line-up might force Adelaide to drop either Kyle Hartigan or Andy Otten.
“Hartigan or Otten. Do they need all the talls?,” Chief posed on The Midweek Rub during Triple M’s Rush Hour.
“So would you pick another runner?
“I’ve got no doubt they’ll discuss that and debate that quite vigorously at match committee.”
Billy added: “They don’t need all the talls, do they. It’s apples for apples.
“The other bloke who’s in contention is Wayne Milera. He’s a runner so maybe he gets a run because that small forward line of Richmond’s, they (Adelaide) only need one tall.”
In a boost for Hartigan and Otten, Chief said that if Mitch McGovern was fit, he would have played. That means the Crows are probably happy to play both of those players.
“If that’s the structure you’re going with, you keep the same structure,” the four-time premiership Hawk said.
“But gee, you’ve got to take into account the opposition you’re playing. I know you like to play your own game but there’s a lot of speed and a lot of smalls in the opposition.”
James Brayshaw said: “You’d be stiff to get dropped from that (Adelaide) team.”
